June 12 is the deadline for daily papers (printed four or more days per week) to register. For just $95, newspapers will receive an evaluation of their print quality from three independent judges, and they also will be entered into SNPA's annual Print Quality Contest. Additional newspapers printed in the same plant on the same press can be entered for just $50 each.
